Last year, Alabama opened as just a touchdown favorite over Tennessee.
The point spread is a lot higher this time.
The Crimson Tide is a 34-point favorite over the Volunteers, according to Danny Sheridan.
Alabama is 7-0 and has won its four SEC games by an average margin of 41 points. Tennessee is just 3-3 overall and is 0-3 in SEC play.
The Vols’ two most recent games were a 41-0 loss to Georgia and a 15-9 loss to unranked South Carolina.
Tennessee hasn’t beaten Alabama since 2006 and has lost seven of the last 10 games by 20 points or more.
